Sports Massage Team

Sports Massage Team News: 

The 2023 season is winding down.  We have been enjoying another great year working with athletes.  Events include runs, trials for Olympic speed walking, wheelchair race, roller derby and disk golf.  All participants will be hearing soon about the CEU credits they have earned. 

We are looking for new members.  If you are interested in sports massage and are either a NJ licensed massage therapist with active AMTA insurance or a currently enrolled massage student in good standing carrying student insurance through the AMTA, please complete this form or just reach out to Heather Dalton for an informal conversation. 

Our current team members have an average of 20+ years experience, this is a golden opportunity that may be in its sunset.  Learn what you can from us on the field and earn credits for additional CEU’s while doing so.  No, you do not get paid, but most of our veteran members get paid to show you what we’re happy to share here for free.
